Chamber Orchestra of Europe

The Chamber Orchestra of Europe was founded in 1981 by a group of young musicians graduating from the EUYO. The aim of the group was to be able to continue to perform together at the highest possible professional level; of the original group thirteen remain in the current membership of sixty. The members pursue careers as soloists, tutors and leaders of nationally based orchestras, yet they come together regularly to perform in major cities across Europe and occasionally in the USA and Japan.
